We had a lovely holiday in Cabanas. The apartment was really lovely as were the views. The only problem was that it was a good 30min walk to the beach. A car might be useful although you still have to park to get the little boat to the beach. That was great fun. We found some lovely restaurants. The pool area was quite packed in August which wouldn't be a problem if people didn't insist on putting towels on the beds and not using them.
We would certainly go back.
Chris, the representative , was really helpful and kind. He picked us up at the train station and was very helpful about giving tips about the area.

Just returned from a week in early Sept 2011 (2 adults + 2 teenage girls). We flew to Faro, then transferred to the resort by taxi to Faro train station (5 mins, €8) and then by train to Conceicao (40 mins, €4 each). Chris the worlds most helpful agent met us at the train station and even drove us up to the apartment (but it is less than a 5 minute walk).
We were immediately impressed by the cleanliness of this spacious modern apartment, the facilities and the view from the roof. We spent many a night barbecueing under the stars. Everything works perfectly, the aircon is brilliant and the hot water never runs out, there are even 6 UK TV channels (good for those with teenagers!).
It's perfect for families, although some might not like the 15 minute down hill walk to one of the best beaches in the Algarve, but it really is worth it. Cabanas beach is a short water taxi ride (€1.5 each return), but it is safe, spotlessly clean and the sea is warm and clear.
Mary the owner is lovely to deal with so dont worry if it's your first time booking with owners direct, it was our first time too and we got much better value and facilities.
We can't wait to return and the first thing we'll do is check the availability of this apartment.
